Would anybody out there have photographs of the Minifig SYW 25mm Russian Cavalry, in particular , RSWC 5 Russian Carabinier and RSWC 8 Russian Carabinier Officer.
Many thanks.

Tricornes- I think with a plume. IIRC they represent the immediately post-SYW (1764 seems to stick in my mind but I'm away from my books) conversion of lots of Russian Cuirassier/Dragoon/Horse Grenadier regiments to a standard medium cavalry type they called Carabiniers.

So they're not really SYW figures I guess- but the Minifigs folks back in the day had a few funny ideas about troop types.

Hope that helps.
